Causerie mensuelle du CIRA-Marseille. Dans la presse, chez les militants de gauche ou les politologues, on parle beaucoup des exploits des combattants et combattantes kurdes. Pourquoi réussissent-ils, là où les autres échouent ? Parce qu’au-delà de la défense de leur identité, une idée nouvelle leur fait espérer un autre futur : le confédéralisme démocratique. Et de cela, on ne parle pas. Au début des années 2000, le Parti des travailleurs du Kurdistan (PKK) abandonne le...

Causerie mensuelle du CIRA-Marseille. Gustav Landauer, assassiné au sortir de la révolution ratée de Munich en 1919, était considéré comme un doux rêveur. (Il disait que l’Etat n’existait pas – sauf dans nos têtes – et que l’argent était un succédané de l’esprit.) Gustav Landauer était un doux rêveur. (Et notre époque a besoin de doux rêveurs lucides.) Gustav Landauer était un pourfendeur extralucide de l’idéologie du progrès en général et du marxisme en...

Causerie mensuelle du CIRA-Marseille. Parce qu’elle est une institution ambiguë, traversée par de nombreuses contradictions, entre domination et émancipation, l’école est l’objet de multiples controverses et polémiques. La récurrence même de ces débats nous dit déjà peut-être quelque chose de leur stérilité. Une chose en tout cas est à peu près certaine, ils éclairent rarement les pratiques et le quotidien de celles et ceux qui y vivent, souvent confronté(e)s à...

Causerie mensuelle du CIRA-Marseille. Au moment où s’est posée la question du contrôle ouvrier, révolutionnaire ou réformiste, du procès de production, les luttes quotidiennes sur le lieu de travail, à Paris et Barcelone, étaient des faits de résistance : « La résistance était aussi un phénomène conjoncturel et cyclique, mais les refus sont restés une part intrinséque de la culture ouvrière et sont apparus à différentes périodes avec diverses divisions du travail. Pendant...
